WingMan – Fight for Earth
WingMan is a small freetime project which is all about an app in the Windows App Store.
It is a game, where a spaceship needs to defend mankind from aliens, which are trying to destroy earth.
The app is created in a way, that it can run on Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Mobile with Continuum and Windows 10 Desktop (PC, Tablet, etc) using just one code base.
The game can be played using the Xbox One S controller, mouse and keyboard and/or touch input using onscreen buttons and should test the flexibility of the UWP (Universal Windows Platform) backbone.
This app is also a hybrid app, created with Adobe Phonegap / Apache Cordova and Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition, which means it uses webtechnologies in the background. Like that, it can easily be ported to Android and iOS as well without changing any (or close to any) code. So this is a test of being able to create an app for all systems with just one code base.
All those tools can be downloaded for free and are completely free:
Adobe PhoneGap / Cordova
Microsoft Visual Studio
For the creation of the 3d graphics (so the game itself uses only sprites) have been created with Hash Animation:Master, which you will find to be mentioned on this page more than once ;).
